Gosh, Iceland sits atop the mid-Atlantic ridge where seafloor spreading has been going on long enough the separate the Americas from Europe and Africa. Iceland despite the name is relatively ice free, unlike Greenland which isn't green and is covered in ice. Why do reporters fall for this stuff? It only serves to destroy credibility of AGW's. Or is that the intention?

Iceland has a large (relative to its size) permanent ice filed.
BUT the current eruption is nowhere near the ice field. As you say some journalists get things so wrong you have to ask "Where is their common sense?". Such headlines sit alongside another one about the same eruption to the effect that the eruption is on the main airport's land - well Cobber it's a few tens of km off either airport land or airport flight paths.

Just about everything you want to know about this eruption can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsRFmU7aUVo but as I write (day 10) the weather is too bad to see very much of the eruption.

And for a volcanologists insight Prof Valentin Troll is on his way, https://www.youtube.com/c/ValentinTroll/videos

And for those that say the current blanket of fog is caused by the volcano - "total rubbish". About ten years ago I had an unplanned overnight in Iceland due to thick fog covering the western third of the country. It should have been a couple of hours on the ground, but I was on the last long-haul in before the weather closed the doors, the aircraft that should have been my onward flight was diverted to somewhere else not in Iceland (Canada, Norway, Scotland?) I just hope the passengers on that flight (and all the other diverted flights) were treated as well as we were.

Though I guess with the weight of millions of tonnes of snow and ice no longer pressing downward then something could be allowed to escape upwards.

Just to let you know the rain and fog have cleared and the lava eruption and flow can be seen.

Those FACTs are MEANINGLESS To ME.

My Breathing and Overall Health is Going to be SAME whether 100 Percent GREEN or 100 Percent FOSSIL.

Now, if it Stayed as it Was in 1973 I'd Say NAY.

WE are So Much Better Off Today Due to FOSSIL FUEL Use Becoming so MUCH CLEANER

Now, it is Time for My DEEP BREATHING Exercises.

After I Posted I went Outside and Received TOTAL CONFIRM of My Post.

I go out in Streets front and side of house and Sweep off debri - Twice a day.

A TRASH Truck passed by while out there and IT STUNK. NOT from Engine EXHAUST - There was NOTHING there - CLEAN Breathing for Me -
HOWEVER da TRASH SMELLED like HECK.

NO EXHAUST Fumes. Only Stinky TRASH.

Like I Said. Sweetness of Air - GREEN or FOSSIL. Unless One Goes BACK in TIME - Air is GOoD. REAL GOoD.

GREEN can WAIT - Take Its Time. FOSSIL is doing FINE. REAL FINE. and CLEAN.

SUPERBreathe

So...

Why are we investing in ANY new dirty old fossil fuel projects?!


Just Stop Oil protests: Activists arrested over M25 services damage
wrote:
Police have arrested protesters after fuel pumps were damaged and activists glued themselves to service station forecourts on the M25...

... On Tuesday, Just Stop Oil blocked two oil depots in Essex and Warwickshire, resulting in 35 arrests.

The group warned it would "continue the disruption until the government makes a statement that it will end new oil and gas projects in the UK".



Are recent new projects in dirty old fossil fuels nothing more than pyramid schemes to generate stranded assets?...

What a continuing unnecessary mess?


Peru to sue Repsol for $4.5bn over oil spill
wrote:
Peru's consumer protection agency is suing Spanish oil firm Repsol over a huge oil spill which blackened beaches off the coast of Lima in January.

The spill, which Peru called the worst ecological disaster around Lima in recent memory, leaked more than 10,000 barrels into the Pacific Ocean.

The civil lawsuit seeks $3bn (£2.54bn) for environmental damage and $1.5bn (£1.27bn) for damages to locals.

Repsol has denied responsibility...



Total denial by Repsol.

Total denial of all the mess and pollution?...

Wonder what Greta says about this

... 9,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent every day from this flare, the burning causes other significant issues ... flaring as the dominant source of black carbon deposition in the Arctic and any increases in flaring in this region are especially unwelcome...

... More a question is what the rest of the entire world will say and do...?

And for how the Markets respond...?

PooTin follows dirty echoes of Saddam Hussein?...


Do we really have to destroy our planet for the sake of petty humans at war?...

We effectively did nothing and the result is;
‘Zombie ice’ from Greenland will raise sea level 10 inches
Zombie ice from the massive Greenland ice sheet will eventually raise global sea level by at least 10 inches (27 centimeters) on its own, according to a study released Monday.

Zombie or doomed ice is ice that is still attached to thicker areas of ice, but is no longer getting fed by those larger glaciers. That’s because the parent glaciers are getting less replenishing snow. Meanwhile the doomed ice is melting from climate change, said study co-author William Colgan, a glaciologist at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.

“It’s dead ice. It’s just going to melt and disappear from the ice sheet,” Colgan said in an interview. “This ice has been consigned to the ocean, regardless of what climate (emissions) scenario we take now.”

Study lead author Jason Box, a glaciologist at the Greenland survey, said it is “more like one foot in the grave.”

Has Putin and the fossil fuels lobbyists won their war against our only one planet?...


Energy bills to be capped at £2,500 for typical household
wrote:
... The huge support scheme could cost up to £150,000 Million...

... The government will compensate energy firms for the difference between the wholesale price for gas and electricity they pay and the [much lower] amount they can charge customers...

... The dramatic state intervention will be funded by government borrowing, adding to the UK's already large debt pile...

... This comes after Ms Truss rejected calls to extend a windfall tax on gas and oil company profits to pay for the package...

... Ms Truss also outlined plans "to make sure we have security of [energy] supply for the long-term".

This includes issuing new oil and gas exploration licences for the North Sea and lifting the ban on fracking for shale gas...

... Scrap green levies - which add £150 to bills each year...

... Launch a new oil and gas licensing round as early as next week, boosting production in the North Sea...

... Seek to negotiate lower-priced long-term contracts with renewable and nuclear power companies...

... Launch a review to ensure the UK is meeting its Net Zero 2050 target in "an economically-efficient way", given the altered economic landscape...


Significantly absent from that is anything to boost making more (non-polluting) green energy available such as to bring forward any new wind or solar or tidal stream power. That £150,000 Million can completely independently power the UK a few times over with that (including power storage requirements).

Worse still, funds are being removed from the existing green energy!

And yet further into fantasy is that any of the fossil fuels expansion (and extra pollution) will be available soon enough to make any useful difference for this winter or for next year!!


The biggest immediate short term wins are to reduce energy usage in the first place by being less wasteful. Better home and industrial insulation is an easy start upon doing that.

A next big win is to IMMEDIATELY REQUIRE ALL new housing to be built to the better standards that were supposedly agreed years ago yet that are still not "voluntarily" implemented...


Meanwhile, our planet burns...

And this is our only one planet.
